Trunki?s range of ride-on luggage has become a firm favourite with children from across the UK and beyond. The company may have failed to secure investment on its famous trip to Dragon?s Den in 2006, but that hasn?t stopped it from becoming a roaring success. To date, they have sold more than 1.3 million units in 62 countries worldwide.
Following on from the original Terrance and Trixie cases, Trunki have produced a new, animal-themed design every year. These include a cow, a tiger, a ladybird, a gruffalo and a bee. In 2010 they launched a special princess carriage for girls and a fire engine for boys. They even commemorated the Olympics, with a special Team GB edition Trunki launched in 2011. Many of these products have ceased production, which means they are likely to be highly collectable in years to come.
In addition to their popular suitcases, Trunki have launched a range of other, similar products, including BoostApak - A unique children?s booster seat which doubles as a backpack and the PaddlePak swimming backpack. There?s also SnooziHedz - a travel pillow and blanket and the Trunki ToyBox, a 4-in-1 storage box which also doubles as a rocker.
Often copied, but never bettered, the Trunki has won numerous awards for its innovative design. These include honours from Mother and Baby, Practical Parenting and Design Week. This British brand is proud of its heritage, with all of its products sold in the UK being manufactured here too.
